Questions for the Executive Branch as well as Rants!


Middletown Questions That Need to be answered an other Rants

By: The Real Middletown Insider



Why hasn't anyone from the Mayor’s office ever explain the budget and finances from last year’s big snowstorm? Snow overtime has been very high in 2013-2014 but many roads are not hit while others are hit multiple times.  Logically, this may happen with the busier roads but to ignore whole neighborhoods is unacceptable.

  I am starting to feel that keeping the taxpayers informed is secondary to the current executive branch. It has only been a year and month (give a take a few days), as to when Mayor Drew left the happiness of Middletown to land in China with the hopes of bringing big jobs back to Middletown, CT.   What was he really doing there?  How much did this trip cost and why was he very defensive at the council meeting when he returned?  The citizens of Middletown deserve to have a report on the mayor’s trip.  If he were a Republican mayor, Viktoria Sunderkist would file a story entitled: “GOP Mayor drinks a Diet Soda in China.” This would set off the anti-Gopers everywhere.   
To digress about other issues that Drew isn’t held accountable:  Why is the city buying two old state houses on Wadsworth Street for a dollar from the state but footing the $80,00 plus bill to tear them down?  What the hell is going with that?  Readers need to start asking questions and get informed.  Why should the city of Middletown pay for this? Why is the state allowed avoid is paying any monies to the town while the taxpayers take on the chin?  If one thinks that is crazy, check your paychecks people and look at your tax bills.  While some people struggle and pray the Mill Rate doesn’t go up and up, some city workers are getting huge four-step increase in their pay.  This very ironic for a city that declares: “We are in the middle of a hiring and salary freeze.”   I wonder if this will cause even more friction among the city workers?  According to city hall sources: “People are fed up and do not understand why (deleted) received a four step increase while others received nothing.”

Why doesn't the insider do a "real" story on the PD and the investigation at $60k for starters that is suspiciously going no where !

And why are we hiring more attorneys? The BOE legal costs going up with "shared" services and city's are too. Thought this was supposed to save money. Instead it has become patronage hook up for lawyers who can't cut it in private sector.

Didn't need to pay $60k for McKenna investigation. When allegations were first made should have spent 50 cents on a paper cup and told him to pee in it. Case over.

It would have burned a hole in the cup. That is why!

heard though the grapevine that the mayor refused to ask for a urine from the police chief.

how about Matt Lessor causing an auto accident with the FIRED EX Westlake Fire Chief ????????

Rumor has it the FIRED Fire Cheif's brother (Jerry's Pizza) came up screaming the State Rep was drunk and wanted him arrested (on Moday night).

Then the owner of Jerry's Pizza went to the Middleton Police IA Division for a sitting with the Captain to make a complaint about the investigation that he interfered with and was told to leave before he was arrest for Criminal Obstruction.

Neither driver failed a sobriety field test.

As I wonder on, what does it say about the Mayor and Democrats when the guy that owns Jerry's Pizza is calling for blood from the very same people who have held all their fundraisers at his gin mill. Even some notable members of the public's Birthday party's.

Maria Holdszber had Chief Aylward and acting Fire Chief Terri Orouke bring her down,
Dominique Thorton had Jim Milardo to thanx for losing the election.
Sebby Guiliano had Deb & "Johnny boy" Milardo and Chief McDonald bring him down.
Now it looks like these 2 clown brothers who made a lot of money off the Democratic Machine are going to be Dan the mans downfall.

It is well known he is backing these 2 and wont back down with his support for the 2 Lockwood Lumps.
Guess we can see who is going to be the demise of Dan the Man now, cant we :)

On the Matt Lesser incident, I heard the complaint is that the officer refused to give Lesser an alcohol test, even though he was driving erratic.
The fundraisers are held at this establishment because the silent partner is the Director of a large Middletown municipal department.
